Internet Explorer

internet explorer (5) on a win98 PC isn't working...

dials up to internet fine, but then can't browse web... tried different ISP's, removed and re-installed dial-up connections and TCP/IP, no difference. just keep getting "the page cannot be displayed" message. connection settings all seem fine.

any thoughts?

Thanks, already tried repairing IE (forgot to mention that!) but no change...

anything else in mind?

Do you have a firewall and AV running?

Search for a HOST file and open it up with Notepad.

Delete any entries.

no firewall, just AV... tried dialing whilst ALL else was disabled, no luck

used to work until i replaced motherboard and processor over the weekend...
(opted not to re-install win98)

tried different modem too (external AND internal) still get same result...

Go to Add Remove, and remove IE5 and reinstall from a Mag CD

"no firewall, just AV" as previously stated...

no, i wish it were that simple...! lol, but it's not...

thx for trying to helpme anyways!

any other ideas?

thx, good idea except for the fact that i can't remove IE5 from add/remove as it doesn't appear there!

-the plot thickens-

(i hear you all saying: re-install windows) but i'd rather not unless it's a last resort...

also installed SP1 and that made no difference either!

Had a similar problem a couple of years ago turned out to be a faulty modem.
